Understanding The Risks And Benefits Of Oral Surgery

Posted on 7/24/2023 by Vladana Babcic Tal DMD
Understanding The Risks And Benefits Of Oral SurgeryOral surgery entails operative procedures done to the jaws, teeth, gums, and any other oral structure in the mouth. Just like with all forms of surgery, there are both benefits and dangers to any operative procedure. It is, however, important to note that the paybacks outweigh the perils. Some oral surgeries include implants, gum grafting, teeth extractions, and curative jaw surgeries. Our dentists recommend oral surgeries in cases where there are severely fragmented teeth, widespread tooth degeneration, gum ailments, bone loss in the jaw, and oral cancer, among many others.

Outweighing rewards

Optimal oral health is when all oral structures are in picture-perfect condition. As such, oral surgeries aid in rectifying all conditions that would not otherwise be restored by taking antibiotics and other over-the-counter medication. We can classify oral operative procedures as either diagnostic, dentoalveolar, cosmetic, or reconstructive. For instance, in cases of tooth decay, wisdom teeth complications, periodontitis, or any form of dental trauma, one of the recommended procedures is tooth extraction. The good news is that there is modern technology in the present day that helps our surgeons to provide the most advanced care with even less invasive methods. Oral surgeries are a definite choice in restoring your smile, ensuring the health of your teeth, and easing every pain either in your jaw, gum, or teeth.

Risks and complications

All surgeries have a certain level of risk, but the risk cannot be compared with the benefits. In oral surgeries, some of the dangers are such as an injury happening to the adjacent teeth, an infection, tooth root fragmentation, numbness, or getting a dry socket. A dry socket happens when during surgery the blood clotting process is inhibited, especially following a tooth extraction. After the surgery, our doctors will give you a post-procedure guideline that will help you abate any form of risk.
